Discourse on Faith

“Lord, give us more faith,”

Luke 17

“Be aware of yourselves and your actions,” Jesus taught the disciples. “If your brother does something wrong to you, tell him. If he apologizes, forgive him. If he does wrong to you seven times a day, and then seven times apologizes, forgive him.”

“Lord, give us more faith,” one of the apostles asked the Lord.

“If you have the faith the size of a mustard seed, you would be able to say to this tree ‘Uproot yourself and be planted again in the sea’, it will obey you,” taught Jesus. “Which of you would have a servant working in your fields, and when he comes in tells him to eat? First, the servant would need to serve the master his dinner, and then the servant will eat.

“It is the same for you. You will first need to do everything that is commanded of you, and then you will be blessed with more faith. Do your duty so that you may be profitable servants.”
